Refinishing Wooden Furniture
Using Household Material
You'll be stunned by this suggestion, but trust us, we know what we're talking about. All you need is either old fabric that is stiff and durable in nature, leftover gift-wrapping paper (good quality), or wallpaper that was stored away but never used. Using stronghold glue, place one of these options on the worn parts of a table, chair, or cabinet; take note that the table and cabinet in question should be small in size, and not large. Make sure the material you use is glued evenly to the surface, rubbing your hand gently over it to make sure that every bit of it adheres well. Use interesting patterns like floral, geometric shapes, or a monochromatic palette.
Spray Primer and Paint
This is an easy-peasy option for DIY lovers in particular, where all you need is sandpaper, spray primer, and spray paint. Sand the surface of the furniture, gently rubbing the sandpaper in one direction or in circular motion; don't be harsh by brutally scrubbing the surface. Once you're done sanding, dust the remnants away using a brush before spraying the primer to the surface. Wait for it to dry before covering it entirely with the spray paint. Be sure to place protective material around your work area to avoid getting the paint on anything else.
Chalk Paint
Chalk paint is nothing like regular paint; its consistency is thicker, it dries beautifully, and it doesn't require a surface to be sanded or primed prior to painting it. It leaves behind a rough, matte-finished surface, which is a better option we say to something that gleans furiously. This works best for furniture that looks worn beyond repair, especially when cracks and the like are evident. Fill the gaps using grout prior to painting the surface, to avoid highlighting these flaws.
Old-Fashioned Staining
Many people prefer staining old wood furniture; the results last longer, while turning a piece of furniture into a spectacle. While the process is a tad longer and more detailed than the previous options, it doesn't hurt to give it a spin if you're patient and willing to try. Staining requires fixing the furniture's flaws prior to beginning, filling in cracks and replacing dislodged nails (if any), finally cleaning and then sanding the surface before it can be primed and painted. Be sure to choose the right stain for your furniture, by doing a little research on its many cousins.
